Heritage Seed Potatoes

Heritage Seed Potatoes

Discover an exceptional range of heritage seed potatoes at D.T. Brown Seeds. These classic cultivars have been customer favourites for many years, and remain popular to this day. Some of our heritage varieties have had a place in our range since 1908, when D.T. Brown was first established – a true testament to their enduring appeal. 

Also known as heirlooms, heritage potatoes are time-honoured varieties renowned for their unbeatable flavours and reliable crops. Our collection of seed potatoes contains some of the very best heritage potatoes available, beloved by generations of UK home gardeners. From the crisp and fluffy King Edward VII to the waxy red-skinned Desiree, each one has a unique story to tell. Dispatching from late January.

Explore Our Timeless Heritage Potatoes

The term ‘heritage potato’ usually refers to open-pollinated cultivars developed at least 50 years ago. Unlike modern varieties bred for higher yields or as disease-resistant potatoes, heritage seed potatoes have earned their place through their exceptional taste and time-tested reliability. 

Our heritage varieties each boast their own unique characteristics that make them truly rewarding to grow. Take the Duke of York, for instance – classic first early seed potatoes introduced in 1891. With their small size, rich flavour, and firm, waxy texture, they’re perfect for boiled new potatoes. The versatile Maris Piper is another heritage favourite, known for making deliciously fluffy baked, roasted, and mashed potatoes.

Grow our heritage seed potatoes in your garden, allotment, or patio potato planters, and connect with a legacy of horticultural excellence.
